Wish You Were Here!
I wish I could have attended the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project’s Saturday Reunion today. I loved reading about the highlights on all the blog posts — another amazing Saturday in New York City! Diane Ravitch was a keynote speaker! This amazing event drew the usual crowd of teachers from around the country! The weather wasn’t too shabby! Smiles to all of you. Thank you for sharing.
I read that some fellow Slicers got to meet each other for the first time in person! How wonderful! Finally getting the chance to truly become personal friends AND share in the learning — the opportunity of a lifetime. I look forward to the next time I will walk with a thousand other people along Broadway, crossing over at 120th ST to Riverside Church, arriving at least 45 minutes early to get a good seat (now there’s a challenge!), and enjoying a fun-filled day of thinking and sharing time with the experts in the field of education.
As for today’s events at home, I have to admit it was a productive, busy, yet relaxing day. The dryer got fixed — yay! I can do laundry! (Note the sarcastic tone.) We did our taxes — yay! (No, really! We needed that done.) My daughter and I went to the mall and brought home dinner — yay! (No, really! It was nice to get out.) And for tonight’s main event, I watched “Pretty Woman” on TV — yay! (I enjoy viewing my favorite classic movies again and again.)
Bonus! It’s only Saturday and most of my chores are done now; I can enjoy the entire day tomorrow, too! “Wish You Were Here” — not just a line from a postcard.

I also enjoy re-watching old favorites from time to time. “Pretty Woman” is one of them. There are some movies that, no matter how many times I’ve seen them, if I come across them on TV I just have to stop and watch.

What’s really funny is that I don’t mind the commercials! I just load the dishwasher, or check email, or some other task.

I was following the tweets about #TCRWP Reunion too. I really wanted to be there. If we both go next time, let’s try and meet. 🙂 Glad you had a productive Saturday!

I would love to get together! I think the summer institutes are pretty full, but the next reunion day is October 18th (?) We should plan it now. I look forward to your posts, as well. Thank you for being my blogging friend!

Saturday Reunions are always an incredible experience, but getting to meet “virtual” friends raises them to a whole new level! I love having the kind of productive day at home that you had, though, too. We need a balance of both!
